Botella. Negra opaca. Mucha espuma. Aroma principalmente a caramelo con toque a higos. Agradable. En boca entra amarga y con cuerpo para acabar tornando a algo más achocolatado y dulce. De hecho el caramelo sólo sale en el postgusto y le da un toque muy interesante. Muy rica.

12 oz. bottle, brought to Joe’s Halloween party by Daniel. Pours very dark brown, nearly black, with a brown, huge, foamy head. The nose is big, roasted coffee, caramel, bitter chocolate, and some earthiness. Sweet, syrupy, and malty up front, with a strong bitterness that balances out the flavor pretty well. Heavy body, creamy, lightly acidic, and hard. This is a very solid porter.

Pours a dark brown with chocolate shake colored head. Kind of tastes a little like a chocolate malted too, but not heavy on chocolate flavor, just notes. A little molasses in there, some bitterness too. Good beer.
